    Take Aim: Amy Sciarretto vs. T Bird and the Breaks - Get to know 'em

    Today, we Take Aim with T Bird and the Breaks. The Austin funk x soul collective is SUPER FUN and answered everything in the third person. So adorbs. And talented, too!

    Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!

    T Bird & The Breaks were formed as an after-school program for needy musicians and wayward youth by the city of Austin in 2008. The community center lent to the program by the city was burnt down during a spirited session of drumcore exercises and now the band is playing shows to recompense the damages (Booking: lacey@atomicmusicgroup.com)

    If you were not doing music, you would be...

    ... When T Bird & The Breaks is not making music, T Bird & The Breaks is running down the voodoo.

    Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?

    T Bird & The Breaks enjoys a lively game of dice, is a fluent speaker of French-Creole, both Acadian and Haitian dialects, and is also an avid collector of Atlantic Records test-pressings and acetates from the years 1947,'48,'49, 1954'-'59, and also 1971.

    Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?

    'Spacedust' is a song from the new album HARMONIZM commissioned by Neil Degrasse Tyson for the current reboot of Carl Sagan's classic Cosmos TV series. The show's producers apparently had issue with certain lyrical content and the song was passed over for the first season but NDT says he's committed to working with TB&TB in the very distant future.

    Finish this sentence: T Bird & The Breaks is the artist that...

    ... T Bird & The Breaks is that artist that will melt your face off, funk your mind up, and leave you asking 'Dude, where's my car?'

    Who wants to get to know T Bird & The Breaks even further? HARMONIZM is out now.
